Awakening Loving-Kindness

This new, redesigned edition of Awakening Loving-Kindness shares inspiration and encouragement for cultivating kindness–by embracing the joy, suffering, confusion, and brilliance of our everyday lives.

Based on talks given during a one-month meditation retreat at Gampo Abbey, where Pema lives and teaches, this book’s teachings focus on learning how to truly live in one’s skin without embarrassment or harshness–and to love oneself and one’s world wholeheartedly. With her characteristic softness and relatability, Pema shows how some of the most simple practices to cultivate no-escape mind can alleviate human misery at a personal and global level.
